Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Signs of the Season

This week at Heart 2 Heart, we are sharing artwork representative of "Signs of the Season".  Of course the first thing that comes to my mind is fall, changing leaves, etc. But what do I know? I live in Texas! LOL At least it has been a little chilly. I'm thankful for that. 
I decided to take out my Happy Day Cardmaking Kit and made this card, one of twelve cards (two designs). A stamp technique, called "masking", was used to make the leaf  image appear to be in the foreground of the stamped flower. Returning to one of my childhood passions, I enjoyed coloring in the images...with watercolors. Those two techniques will be highlighted in a future post.
One of the fun products incorporated into this card design is the Leaves Embossing Folder. By taking the piece of cardstock and running it through my Cuttlebug, I got the fun pattern used on the background of the card. Doesn't it look fabulous? It's super easy!
There are a lot of fabulous items contained within the kit to include:
1 - exclusive workshop stamp set (B-size)
2 - Falling for You sheets
4 - cardstock sheets (2 Espresso, 1 Saffron, 1 White Daisy)
1 - White & Gold Ribbon (Z3189)
12 - White Card Bases and Envelopes

Additional supplies needed to make this card and the others:
Archival Black Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad (Z3271) - so the watercolor doesn't cause the ink to bleed
Watercolor Paints (Z3132)
Waterbrush - Medium Round (Z3225)
Leaves Embossing Folder (Z4031)
Thin Cuts - Basic Circles (Z3318)
Thin 3-D Foam Tape (Z2060)

  1. Very nice Fall card. Love the use of the Leaves embossing folder.

  2. I agree, best way to celebrate Halloween is by keeping a layout. These layout is really cute. However, this post requires a printout link layout.
